Interesting game. Didn't know it was the PC Engine's first RPG. Seems like the darker look and taller, plainer sprites was a bit of a trend in early PCE RPGs, with games like this, Susanoo Densetsu, and Dungeon Explorer all sharing a similar aesthetic. This seems to have been replaced with a standard, less impressive NES-RPG-with-better-colors look afterward (the Momotaro Densetsu games, Benkei Gaiden, Sindibad, even the first Tengai Makyou on CD). Funny that the enemies have idle animations, but no attack animations. It made the opposite choice as Phantasy Star had a year before. Still, they look pretty cool. I just don't like the slow walking speed.
